I think he means it isn't really like forza4 as far as handling, tuning...etc. It plays and handles more like NFS.

Hey people, it's been awhile since I posted but I'm going to be on tonight around midnight with Shiz and Jared.
My proposal: build/have your best "A" class car, and we'll do 20 laps at Laguna Seca, full sim.
Should be fun.

Oh man I wish I saw this earlier. I'm definitely down to do that. I've got a few cars in mind that I'd use. A 190e Evo II or Nsx, hmmmmm.

It never ended up happening. Jared never made it online and Matt and I were having stupid network connection issues. Wouldn't let us join each other's party.

We should definitely plan this again soon though.

Dear god, please play the demo before you make any drastic decisions that you will regret in the first 5 minutes of that game. I will be waiting for it to be available at my local public library.

I didn't mind the game. I beat it the other day, haven't done every race yet, but I did enough to be the Horizon Champion. Its entertaining and something different. I honestly have a lot of fun just driving around setting high scores on the speed traps. Its nice to have the option to drive around and have fun with the different cars and not always have to be racing (like normal Forza).

Its not a Forza4 replacement, just something different to have fun with.

That and I wouldn't mind driving around if the engine noises were a little better... and that awful woman didn't keep asking me why I'm not doing her invite only events EVERY 2 seconds.

I also get 100% off upgrades which makes the game too easy, and every car in my garage R3-R1

I'm just trolling though its ok

How much modifying can you do on cars' appearance? I saw a Horizen pic of a FRS with a wing. Can you still do body kits and paint jobs? Do they have any more options beyond what was in Forza4? Also, I just noticed they don't have a GD Impreza.

Its the same as forza4 still has pretty much all the same upgrades and such. It doesnt seem to have the option to swap cars to RWD or AWD. But still can do motor swaps.

They have a 22b STi and a newer STi. More car packs to come, so, maybe there will be more?

Best part, they finally added matte paint as an option.

Are those the only two? Or is there still an 04?
That's what I used 90% of the time in Forza 4.

I know it's the same car. The fanboi in me wanted a BRZ.[/quote]

time to take my max tuned black on black wrx for a spin on Forza horizons. Too bad they haven't made weather conditions like snow to play in.

Yeah, they announced a Rally Pack expansion, supposed release is early december '12, so quite soon. Confirmed different surface conditions, so that means snow, maybe mud too. No confirmation on specifics of extra cars or falling weather conditions, i.e. rain, falling snow, etc. But they're bound to have some rally classics right? Maybe bring in a blob-eye or hawk-eye sti? Maybe a Porsche 959? who knows.
Personally I'm a huge fan of this new game. I don't mind a slight decrease in car selections, because the terrain is so well done. I love Forza4, but getting off the track (which as a video game, gets repetitive after 3 laps) is such a relief! At the risk of sounding cliche, it truly takes the simulation we love from Forza and marries it with the open-world freedom of a "sand-box" style game.

I agree. The expansion needs to hurry up, I've won every event, all i have left is a few street races.

Horizon was only $15 at Walmart yesterday. Pretty sure my sister grabbed me a copy for Christmas. I wasn't overly impressed with the demo, but for that price, I figured why the hell not.

Rally expansion out today. Watched the trailer the other day, should be fun. Reminds me a lot of dirt roads and such in Northern New England, so, the fact that it has sort of a "local" feel i think will make it that much better.

They have the 22B, The 2011? STi and I think there was a legacy in one of the car packs. But if you download the rally pack ($20 with a few new offload courses and easy money) you get the 05 STi and the Evo8/9..
